Stopped by for a dinner on a Sunday night based on the TA reviews, and glad we came. First impressions were a little mixed; the place feels out of date and a little cheap with the décor, old tables, menus that look aged. Our wines by the glass were not great (one so bad it had to be returned and... More

When something is truly exceptional I want to tell as many people as possible so here is my story. I needed to host a dinner in Baltimore for a group of people from out of town. Being from out of town myself I contacted a few different places and then got in touch with Paul Oliver at Dalesios’s. My group... More

I was expecting an Italian meal experience like no other. After all, it's ranked #4 and until now Trip Advisor reviews have always steered me in the right direction. Instead, I left the restaurant scratching my head in puzzlement. How did this get such a high rating? Sure the people were friendly, but it's about the food. And the food... More

With so many choices of Italian restaurants in Little Italy of Baltimore, I am so glad we choose Dalesio's. From the minute we walked in the service was great. We sat outside on the balcony where you could enjoy the atmosphere of the neighborhood. We started with the Lobster Raviloi, which was amazing, ravioli filled with luscious lobster and a... More

we made a reservation for 10+highchair, but actually ended up with 12+ high chair. They had our original table set for us, which would not fit the extra seating. On a Saturday night there's not allot of unreserved space for a large group. Within a few minutes they had rearranged their seating chart and graciously made up a new table... More

We hosted 45 for our son's Rehearsal Dinner. Paul, the owner, was a joy to collaborate with. He helped us design a personalized delicious/varied menu & bar within budget. Our guests - including many Baltimore natives gave the food & evening rave reviews. There are not many spots in Little Italy that can comfortably hold large dinner parties. The space... More

We were four old friends, heading for Sabatino's before a Pier 6 concert on a Tuesday night. The two ladies running the parking lot were horrified at our plans and sent us off to Dalesio's, directly across the street. We ate outside on the cool and shady East-facing balcony, and nothing disappointed. We will go back!

Paul and his team delivered an amazing experience for my team's Employee Appreciation event! The room was clean, warm and inviting and easily fit the party of fifty-five.
